To most of you, I must had been so lazy not posting anything for more than 4 months. Yes, I had been really lazy but I had been going through a lot of personal emotions this year. I learned a lot and started to finally understand what’s really mean the most in my life. Life to me is not about traveling and having my own good life anymore. Below are my journey to my own soul……
I had been traveling for too long and been aways from New York home for too long. Since I had moved to NYC dated 2005 I had been traveling on and off 3 or 4 times for a 2 weeks to 3 months duration. My longest journey was my 2012-2013 Trans-africa Aeventure which last for more than 8 months. I still have loads of pictures and tons of stories to tell.
After I went back to New York, my parent came to visit me and they stayed in NY for almost a month. I was happy but not as excited since my parent was actually forcing me to end my trip and they actually bought their flight to NYC before I did. So, Iran was my # 100th country and my last country on this trans-africa trip.
Right after my parent left, I started my eastern europe trip again from Italy to Hungary, from Hungary to Romania and from Bulgaria to Turkey. And I still havent write anything about Bulgaria, my # 103th country:) So here it is a picture of me at the Rila monastary @ Bulgaria:P
And my final stop is still Iran!!! My heart was left over there during my last trip:) I went to Kerman, Isfahan, Shiraz, masuleh, Rudkhan, castle on my last trip. This time I went to the north and went to see the beautiful ocean and lakes.
Then I had to head back to NYC because of my best friend’s wedding.
After that I was in New York for about 3 weeks, then I headed to Iran again! yes, I had been to Iran 3 times in 2013 and I love this country:) I think I had been to more places in Iran than most travelers and I am very happy about this. If I have the drive later, I will tell you all about it later. here is a picture of me at the Caspian sea which I had one great story of me seeking for Beluga caviar!!
And then I got back to NYC and stayed till March 5th , 2014. I had found myself a lot of hobbies while I was in NY. I bought so many different types of electronic cigars and favors. And I love to drink Chinese tea. I love all middle eastern lifestyle and hookah/shisha.
Ofcourse I spent a lot of time searching for nice restaurants…..
I love high tea so much…
And I spent so much time with my cats….I love them so much…
but then it’s a difficult year because my male cate-chai chai passed away this year at the age of 10:(
and I got sick…
But I was so into baking and cooking ..
and I hired a personal trainer to help me keep fit…
and I watched a lot of “games”..which I never really into….
but I love skiiing….
and I spent my new year eve 2014 at time square
and chinese new year too
and went to another wedding and feeling so old
I might look happy on the outside….but I want more, I was selfish and greedy and I want more. ON March 5th 2014. I set on a journey to live in Iran but I failed. after 4 and a half month …
I went back to Hong Kong.
and I went traveling to china and Macau.
And for the first time I felt my heart is filled with love and it’s the happiest time in my entire life.
Is life all about the materialistic things we want ? Is it all about traveling in search of the meaning of life?? I think I got the answer already. I want to do things in life that will make others happy. I don’t want to be selfish anymore. However, that’s doesn’t mean I will not be traveling or showing you guys all the beautiful things in this world. Just I hope everyone will see the new me in the near future. Cheers:)
